Neither George nor his mom are really huge dancers. Okay let me clarify, George can DEFINITELY bust a move, but he has to be in the mood/ with the right people/ the right song/ be a full moon. Haha.

My point is that they were a little nervous about being up in front of everyone dancing at the wedding together. I had an idea in mind, that might make them feel a little more confident. They were a little hesitant about it at first, but it turned out great!

George is rather skilled in his two-stepping abilities from his days as a camp counselor (The camp had a county western themed party each year).  So George led Kathy onto the dance floor to the song “Wagon Wheel” (The Darrius Rucker version) and they two stepped to the appropriate lyrics “Rock me mamma like a wagon wheel”. Everyone thought it was super sweet and let them have fun rather than the slow traditional song.


They did a great job, and even threw in some fancy spin moves.
